Apparently not. See how well he handled Anakin and Obi wan one on one.
His style (type 2) was like a fencer. He used a lightsaber for combating other lightsabers only. Something the Jedi themselves had less practice in, for the most part.

There's this new thing out, it's called research. And it can be your friend. No, I'm kidding. But really, it was said that it helps when using the style he utilized, as it would allow him to move his blade further and more efficiently without having to move his hand/wrist as much as usual.
Given his pedigree and such, as one of the absolute best duelists in the entire Jedi Order, he chose that design because its more conducive to how he fights.
